The NewsBusters blog is a project of the Media Research Center (MRC). It has a goal to "provide immediate exposure of liberal media bias, insightful analysis, constructive criticism and timely corrections to news media reporting."
NewsBusters was created in August 2005 with the guidance of Matthew Sheffield and Greg Sheffield, who operated the website RatherBiased.com (now inactive), which criticized former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather. It is a group blog featuring both MRC employees and non-MRC writers.
NewsBusters also hosts a webcast called "NewsBusted," which it calls "the freshest comedy on the Web making fun of liberals and the media."
